Vindicator of Time- A poem about selfishness

Updated on February 6, 2013

Title: Vindicator of Time

I painted a picture today
All that I wanted to see
All of my hopes for tomorrow
An exact replica that is made of me
Call me selfish; I call it human
Cause once you've had a taste of what you want
The Addiction is simply too much to let go

Feel it race throughout your veins
It's retribution holding new names
Cause it feels to good coming in
And I'm forgetting what's right
My eyes are filled with new highs
And the lies keep on flowing
So take a taste cause I'm to die for
I'm the poison that's worth the kill

Tomorrow means nothing
Cause those scars on your skin carry my name
Did you forget I'm the reason you cried
The reason you took your own hopes and lied to them
Cause with me in the shadow of your life
You couldn't see what time was to follow
Cause without me there was nothing
I'm your owner- the vindicator of time

So if you need me- look aside
Cause without me- You're walking blind
And without me- you can't feel a thing
And I take pride with every sting I bring
So look away cause in gonna haunt your dreams
I'm every nightmare you can think and ill bring you to your knees
